Hulk Hogan Hospitalized
We're told Hogan -- who has had several back surgeries throughout the years -- has had trouble the past few days and woke up this morning unable to get out of bed.

His girlfriend called the ambulance and, we're told, he was taken to a local hospital in Clearwater, FL.

Sources tell TMZ Hogan is still in the hospital where tests are being run.

UPDATE: Hulk took the time to post a video from hospital room. Intestinal fortitude, brutha!

HULK , I know how bad back pain can be. Hope you get better, Find a good spine surgury center . Nowadays they can fix these problems with orthoscopic surgery. Stay away from pain clinics they will destroy you. Get the problem fixed if its possible.God back pain sucks I will pray for your recovery

Dear Terry(Hulk)Bollea
I'm verry about your back pain and I really symphize with you cause I'm suffering the same kind of pain my self although you might of gotting yours wrestling I got in and accident that happen at work when a garage door was being closed and I happened to be under it,but before that i was in peak shape at the age of 36 when this happened.And before I was an athelete in H.S.and then proceded in college as a wrestler.But the only thing that seperates us is that I never used steroids which I new in later years would catch to you or anyone who does use them.I'm sorry Hulk but I had to let all the younger athletes know this.Hulk I hope you feel better cause you were my favored.Take care

Hang in there Hulk. I too know all about back pain having had several surgeries and procedures. I hope they find out exactly what it is and get you back on your feet in no time at all. Remember to take it easy and go slow for a while. Jen, watch out for him and take good care of your sweet heart. God bless you and your family
